Sometimes when I hit the ball I can hear it  hit the wood. Does this mean that I have to get thicker or harder rubber?

Hi Vincent,

It may just mean that you need to brush the ball more on contact.  If your are contacting the ball flat it will sink into the wood rather than utilising the spin of the rubber.
